Intelligence is at the heart of what MI6 does.  It is the secret information that the British government requires to keep the country safe and prosperous.

As an Intelligence Officer your focus will be gathering, delivering and utilising intelligence.  These are fascinating and unique roles.  Whether working with government departments to identify the intelligence requirements, overseeing a targeting effort to develop an operation to gather the intelligence, meeting the agents overseas with access to the intelligence, or reporting the intelligence back to senior government Ministers you will be at the forefront of keeping this country safe and secure.

Your career will likely encompass all of these roles but you will not be assigned to any one until you have been through the initial induction course which will allow us to assess where your skills best lie.  In your career you will also have the opportunity to work overseas, receiving language training where appropriate.

As your career develops you will have ample opportunities to broaden your skills and look to move into management and operational leadership positions.

You will receive a competitive salary (variable dependent on relevant experience) and also benefit from additional allowances, including child care support during training.

Note:  candidates are required to have, or expect to achieve, a minimum of a 2:1 degree.
